Forum: etree Subject: Collection and Band name are slightly different

Hi,
I'm adding the first show for a band called Renegade Saints. I didn't see their abbreviation. When I picked the etree collection, it is RenegadeSaints (no space) in the Collection Field but the band name is Renegade Saints (Space) in the Band Name Field. http://www.archive.org/details/RenegadeSaints1993-09-25.DSBD_tekmstr.48.24

In looking at the band page for Renegade Saints it says there are no uploads. I can see the upload at the URL but not sure why it is not tied to the band unless it has something to do with the space/no space.
Thanks in advance!!

Hi - the collection name is always no spaces, since it's the part of the URL after /details/, so no need to worry about that. It just takes a little while for the search engine to index things - usually it takes care of things overnight - and I do indeed see it listed on the band's page now.

On a separate note, you may notice that the FLAC and mp3 files are on separate lines on that page - you don't need to upload your own mp3's as the system will create them for you automatically. If you want to fix this, I can help.

Yes, you might as well fix it, I set to derive, I should have known better!

I guess my bigger question though is: My DATs are recorded at either 48K or 44.1K because back in the day at the beginning I just didn't think it mattered that much, so early tapes are at 48K. I'm transferring digitally, and setting the bit depth to 24. So the tapes are 48/24 and I'm having no problem playing back these or the mp3s. Is there any reason to go through the step of making 44.1 / 16 bit files available? Will the derive process make 44.1 ? Just seems like what is the point if you are not going to burn a CD...I listen to everything over Google Music now, FLAC streaming to my phone :-) :-)...oh yea! Thanks for the help!!

It'll be fixed and derived in a few minutes.

As far as going from 16>24 bit with DAT...I'm not sure why, as you're basically adding eight bits worth of zeroes on top. I understand some programs temporarily convert to higher bit depths for editing and other manipulation, but I don't think you derive any benefit from leaving the files at 24-bit.

As for 48kHz vs. 44.1kHz, totally up to you. We can't derive 44.1 from 48, so if you're going to leave them in 48 I would make a note of it for those who DO want to burn CDs.
